YONKERS, NY – Mike Breen, Republican designee for Yonkers 5th city Council District send out an email notice today upon receiving the support of John Folkerts. Mr Breen writes, “I have always been fully confident in my abilities to represent all members of the 5th District on Yonkers City Council. Today, I am thankful to have the support of John Folkerts, the city of Yonkers Conservative Party Former Chairman, as his support is even more reason to be aware that a vote for Mike Breen is the right vote for Yonkers, not based on a political party but based on who the right candidate is.”
The deal making shenanigan that can only be concocted in Yonkers are so blatantly evident here. Mr. Folkerts has changed teams, or so it seems. Mr Folkerts, sensing the demise of Westchester Councy Conservative Chairman Hugh Fox, Jr., and further recognizing the implosion by present Yonkers Conservative Party Chairwoman Vincenza Restiano, a Hugh Fox acolyte, as opposed to the Gail Burns acolyte he had been, has not jumped ship to survive the sinking fortunes of the Westchester and Yonkers Conservative party prospects by clinging to Mike Breen for support. Mr Breen is the false-God that has tied his cart to the Mike Spano campaign and will now claim his first “I did this for you, Mike!” Mr Breen, slow to recognize the political landscape before him has missed the boat, the deals are done; Mike Breen’s effort is nothing more than pre-ejaculatory. Shame, shame.
Funeral services for Ms Restiano political prospects are to be announced after the General Election Day tally is concluded.
Mr Folkerts changing teams proves he is not loyal, and is easily pimped by circumstances rather than principles. He will be dismissed like a cheap whore when he can be replaced by someone that will not be a lightning rod for contention. That should leave Gail Burns out any future contention, then again, this is Yonkers.
Stephen Cerrato, whose campaign has garnered the support of the Conservative and Independence Parties for his run challenging to represent Yonkers 5th City Council District has suffered a “growing up” rebuke that was unnecessary to have been brewed.
Welcome to Yonkers politics.
It seems the only grown-up among this crowd is Stephen Cerrato.
